About us

1185 Films is a boutique, full-service film and TV production company founded in 2003 by producer and director Nick Franco. People say we’re a bit rock’n’roll. We think that's because we break down barriers, we say what we mean and we're always willing to take creative risks. But, like any successful rock‘n'roll outfit, we’re highly professional, we always deliver and we’re always on time.

With state-of-the art facilities in Farringdon, central London, we offer an end-to-end creative package from concept to delivery, with in-house post production and VFX from our 1185 Post division, plus the best freelance talent from our agency division 1185 Talent. The 1185 Films name comes from the 1.85:1 widescreen cinema aspect ratio, because our love of the cinematic inspires everything we do.

How we work

Passionate creators who are always on your side

At our welcoming studio in the heart of Farringdon, we’ve created a supportive environment for every kind of filmmaker and all types of productions. We want your project to be the best it can be, and we go all out to make that happen.

Att 1185, you’ll meet committed, creative collaborators who make sure you get over the line. Working with us isn’t like staying in an anonymous hotel chain, it’s more like a family-run guesthouse where you’re welcomed as an old friend. Using our experience in film and TV, we aim to deliver the highest possible production values within your budget. Our streamlined, focused approach is more economical than a big production house where you're just another client - so you get a lot more bang for your buck.
